Whoa...you're saying it's all done "in camera"?!? I was thinking your exposure blending was done in post. Ahhh soooo you are using the "Multiple exposure" feature found in the menu...right? I never thought I had a use for this until now. I agree with your preference for the VND as that's my go-to method as well, but I can't wait to try your multi exposure technique! THANKS MUCH ERIC FOR THE TIP!
To the OP - apologies for the thread drift, but Eric got me so excited
